Dumb Name for a Food Company: Food Should Taste Good

I respect them because yes, food SHOULD taste good, and I'm daily baffled by what most Americans will settle for.

But, that's a sentence, not a company name. Noun, Verb, Object, Subject....that's too much going on. It's only a matter of time until it becomes "FSTG" which I just abhor.

Beeeeeee-whoop

Spiral down, spiral down

THUD

tinkle, tinkle, as wings crackle into dust.

Everytime a new acronym is born, a fairy dies.

ANYWAY, my point was going to be...sucky name, fabulous product. Their multi-grain chips (whole foods, Costco) are fabulous. Almost a cracker, almost a tortilla chip, they can go either way and with half the food guilt of either.

Note: do not go gorging on these because you think "oooh, multigrain, they're GOOD for me!" That kind of thinking is how your ass got so big in the first place. They're better for you than straight tortilla chips or crackers because you're getting some real nutrition along with the calories. Look at the serving size, Wilbur, and count out a normal portion size. Now you can be smug.

So I take it you don't go to TCBY or ICBIY?

Isn't it Noun, Verb, Verb, Adverb? (not entirely sure how the modifier "should" gets classified, but at its heart it's a verb)

On a non-pedantic food note, I had some amazing Greek garlic-potato-lemon-olive oil dip last night that I think would be amazing at VARF. I'll see if I can dig up a recipe and bring it. :)

I don't even know what the second one is. I do know that Frozen Yogurt is an abomination, so if the company name alone wasn't enough....

I wasn't actually diagramming the sentence, for the record, giggle. I was just saying that if you can start naming the grammatical parts of your company's name, you've got a problem.

Mmmm, garlic, potato, lemon, olive oil...now THAT'S food.

I Can't Believe It's Yogurt. Which, if *they* don't know what it is, *I* certainly don't want to eat it.

The yummy stuff is called skordalia. I'm going to see if I can finagle the restaurant's actual recipe, but will experiment with web ones if I come up short. A bunch of the ones I found use bread or nuts or cream...I'm hoping to keep it pure.
